P2P progs will not install
I think I got a good one this time.
Recently had to do a reinstall, because I couldn't get HP printer to work. (Mandriva 2007).
Since then, I have had trouble with 2 Issues that are probably related. It seems that JRE is the problem. First, I can't get Firefox to recognize the freshly installed Java. I know it's there, and is working properly because it works in Opera. I have removed and replaced the symbolic links, but still no go.
my Java is located here:
My Firefox is located here:
usr/lib/mozilla-firefox-188.8.131.52/ns7/plugins (where I created the symbolic link with:
ln -s /usr/lib/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
I cant get Limewire to install, It tells me that It needs JRE......
Frostwire will install but will not run.
I Installed Amule, but it will not run either.
I have set up easyURPMI for the updated packages. and have updated several times.
One question is: DO I have to Uninstall limewire (or frostwire) that may have been there before? If so perhaps someone can explain that process to me.
The other question is:
How can I get Firefox to jecognize the Java installed. Do I have to re-install Java (possibly in a different location)
BTW I have tried installing from the Terminal and the KDE software installer.
I am still liking the Mandriva, and I am sure that this is just something that I am doing wrong.
Help me out here guys..... You have been a big help with all the other problems, Maybe this one is more of a challenge.....
3 weeks and still no Java
Well still having this same problem. No Java after 3 weeks. I have tried everything I could possibly think of....
No one has any Ideas?
Seems strange, but on the first install it worked out of the box first time out. No problems, unfortunately, cant remember how I did it.
Someone told me that I needed to add Java to my path but couldn't explain how to do it.
Is this true? If so perhaps someone can explain it for me.
Thanks for the help.
